More than a decade after it first appeared, Chris Fuhrman's posthmously published novel remains one of our most popular fiction titles. Praised by the Philadelphia Inquirer as a "sad and beautiful" story that "captures wonderfully the vulnerability and overdone cynicism of adolescence," THE DANGEROUS LIVES OF ALTAR BOYS has long needed a reader's guide - not only for those picking it up for the first time but for dedicated fans who find new meaning in the story with each rereading.
